The quality of the toy is always a very important aspect especially when it comes to outdoor toys because low quality bikes, skates or slides can break down at any instant causing potential damage. Therefore always opt for standard, good quality baby toys if you wish that your child remains safe while playing. Trying buying products that are durable and which do not break easily because children in the heat of play can often be destructive. Additionally try buying toys devoid of sharp edges that have a potential of causing scratches or cuts. If possible, try taking the child along while buying the toy or show him the image of the toy if you are shopping online. The reaction they elicit will be a very good indicator as to whether they will approve of the toy or not.
However, safety is another very important issue that you have to take care of. Remember, the kids are always very tender and vulnerable. They don‘t have much of a common sense either. So, make sure that the toys are safe for their careless uses. Ideally, the children‘s toys should be made of soft or light materials so that the kids don‘t get injured by them. They should not have any sharp edges and things like that. Also, you have to check out the material used to make the toy. It should be non toxic. Also, the color used in the kids toys should be safe. Also, make sure that the toy does not have tiny parts as the kids can swallow them.
Thankfully, my children has adapted a careful demeanor when it comes to handling their toys, I believe that this is the most important thing, and a first step to ensuring the longevity of toys. Kids and toys must have a bond, so that the children will take extra care in handling them. It also helps to teach them that sharing is important, and that if they don‘t take care of their toys, their brothers or sisters will be losing it as well.
For example, the Sylvanian Family has a set of kids‘ toys that teach them the values of a family. After all, these toys belong to different families and they all live happily together in a place called Sylvania. On the other hand, the construction toys from Knex improve the scientific and technological aptitude of the kids as they think about building structures from micro units. Naturally, playing with these toys makes a kid more knowledgeable and understanding.
The next step is to watch our kids when they play with their toys. We should observe closely if our kids intentionally break their toys. Sometimes, kids do this because they seek attention from us and they see toys as platform to release pent up emotions. Once this is the case, it is better that we spend more quality time with our kids. In some cases, kids‘ toys will get damaged because they played it too much, which is not really bad but if this happens frequent, we should talk to our kids and tell them the value of their toys. It is never too early to teach our children responsibility
Experts say that playing with toys is essential to a child‘s development starting from the infant stage. Kids‘ toys like rattles, mobiles, toy teethers, and key rings help babies connect sound, sight, taste, touch, and smell to objects. Rattles do help them learn about cause and effect not to mention introduce colors and shapes. Color and shape recognition, spatial relationship awareness, hand‐eye coordination, and other motor skills are exercised through playing with educational toys that were made specifically to enhance those skills. There are also kids‘ toys that enhance the kids‘ imagination and creativity. Some toys even teach them patience (think floor puzzles) and reinforce the concept of hygiene (think bath and tub toys).
